What were learning


(continued from pg. 1)
Math
Students are working on their own
individual coursework. The new Math
of Personal Finance books continue to
be a huge success.

Student Art Project of the Month


This drawing of Tupac Shakur was
drawn
by
a
student
for
Art
Foundations.

Science
Students are continuing to work on
their individual needed content area.
All are making good progress toward

End of First Quarter


The first quarter of the 2014-15 school
year came to an end on Thursday,
September 25th. As of this newsletters
printing, students have earned a
combined total of 8.75 credits that
will
appear
on
first
quarter
transcripts.
We are very proud of the students who
worked hard this quarter. Working
hard in school not only gets students
closer to graduating, but contributes
to positive recommendations in parole
hearings.

English
We have started a new program
developed to improve each students
writing skills called, Reward Writing.
Also, we have begun to read the novel
The Pearl, by John Steinbeck. Both of
these additions should enhance the
vocabulary and writing skills of each
student.
